“Fu Daishi Concludes His Lecture on the Sutra”
Emperor Liang Wu requested Mahasattva Fu to expound the Diamond Sutra. The Mahasattva then from the high seat, lifted and brought the lectern table down once, and then came down from the seat. Emperor Wu was dumbfounded.
The Official of the Records asked, “Does Your Highness understand yet?”
The Emperor said, “I don’t understand.”
The Official of the Records said, “The Mahasattva has finished expounding the sutra.”
